How to Pick the Right Carolina Real Estate Agent


How to Pick the Right Carolina Real Estate Agent For YouOnce you’ve decided on your short list of best places to live in North Carolina or South Carolina it is now time to pick the right Real Estate Agent.

Taking your time and picking the right Carolina Real Estate Agent can make or break the buying and selling process.

And if you don’t already live in North Carolina or South Carolina it’s all the more important.

First and foremost, you want to find a Real Estate agent you can trust and rely on.

Sometimes when meeting an agent for the first time, they’ll want you to sign an agreement to work with them.

Don’t sign anything at the first meeting!

The agreement is completely legitimate and necessary to protect the agent as well as you.  However, you wouldn’t agree to marry someone on the first date would you?

Instead, shop around a little.

Don’t be in such a rush.

Take your time.

Meet a few Real Estate Agents.  See what type of chemistry develops. Make sure they are experienced, thorough, and dependable.

And make sure they follow through and do what they say they will do.  There is nothing worse than looking for or buying a home while you are hundreds of miles away.  It is critical you interview the potential Carolina Real Estate agents available.

Be very firm….If they don’t return phone calls, find someone else.

Remember you are in search of your NC and SC best places to live we’re talking about.  You are letting a person into one of the biggest events in your life, pick someone you like, trust, and has had prior successes.

They are professionals, and should be given a chance to work without being second guessed. With that said, do not let yourself be pressured into making an offer, increasing a bid, or accepting an offer because of your realtor’s wishes.

Make sure you do your own independent research about schools, crime rates in the area and types of crimes committed, the environmental health of the area, and the ethnicity and income levels of the area.

Visit the surrounding area, without the Realtor, during the day and night, on weekdays and weekends.  If possible park your car, walk around and meet some people that court be your neighbors.
